Ignoring problems in the hope they will self-rectify does actually work sometimes. However, it’s not much of a strategy, and typically is the refuge of the timid, incompetent, or unsure. Since the problem is likely to get worse rather than better, it’s a poor approach. Yet there can be another reason for ignoring a problem, and that would be because you do not see it as a problem, but rather as something you wish to promote.
Mr. Obama seemed to combine these elements in his strategy, or lack thereof, in confronting terrorism. He would not acknowledge any connection between Islam and terrorist groups, and certainly was not about to take any actions that might in any way offend those of the Islamic faith. By so doing he ruled out some policies that could have at least addressed the issue. In fact, his failure to act calls into question his integrity with regard to this issue.
President Trump has a different approach, and he is not one to cower in the face of criticism or controversy. And he has plenty of it.
Thousands of Yemeni-American Muslims took to the streets of New York City in what is being called the ‘bodega strike’ to protest what they believe is a Muslim ban from President Trump.
In one of the videos you can see thousands of Muslims in a call to prayer as the speaker on a mega phone yells “Allahu Akbar.”
Some of the comments on Twitter in response to this are spot on.
Muslims protesting today in NYC. When will we see them taking over the streets in a movement against terrorism.#BodegaStrike — Tennessee (@TEN_GOP) February 2, 2017
It is very difficult to establish the claim that Donald Trump is anti-Muslim or that his actions are an attack on the Islamic faith. If he had wanted to launch such an attack, he certainly didn’t pick the countries with the largest Muslim populations such as Indonesia or Egypt. He didn’t even designate Pakistan for the ban, a Muslim-led country that does have a terrorist problem.
Of course, there are plenty on the left who will attempt to make that claim along with Islamic organizations that have an agenda to press. Yet the fact is that had there not been a terrorism issue, Donald Trump likely would never have given the Islamic faith a second thought.
President Trump is not interested in persecuting Muslims. He is interested in a secure America, and this is something that all Americans should support, regardless of their religious beliefs.
